March 11, 2020 – Statement by the Grace Emmaus Board of Directors

Dear Emmaus Friends,
On behalf of the Emmaus Board of Directors, it is with a heavy heart that we have decided that it is most prudent to CANCEL the Team Meeting originally scheduled for this Saturday, March 14, and also postpone the spring walks until this fall.
Your safety and security is always a top priority. We believe we must stay both alert, yet calm, keeping your safety foremost in our minds. The date of our next Walks during the fall of 2020 will be determined within a week or two and we will communicate those dates to you as soon as possible.
We have collected some money from workers and sponsors originally intended for the spring walks which have been cancelled and we will maintain those records for the fall walks.  We can use your fees and apply them to the next walk, or we can refund your money without a problem.  Please contact our treasurer, Mike Kernaghan, if you wish an immediate refund by emailing him at:
We pray for those most affected by this virus, health professionals, our churches, the nation, and the world.  If you have any additional questions, please reply to this email, and we will answer your questions to the best of our ability.
Blessings on you,
Grace Emmaus Board of Directors, 2020
